Comment Period Open For C.R. 213 Bridge Replacement
Chillicothe (Thursday, May 18, 2017) – As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9’s Planning & Engineering Department, the district’s Environmental Office is seeking public input for a bridge replacement project in Ross County.
ROS-CR213-0.05 (PID: 92108) – It is proposed to replace the structure located at the 0.05-mile marker on County Road 213 (West Junction Road) in Jefferson Township. The project site is situated immediately west of the Vinton County line, and the existing Warren truss bridge will be replaced with a single-span, galvanized steel truss and reinforced concrete deck.
The project will require approximately 0.311 acres of permanent and 0.065 acres of temporary right of way; however, no homes or businesses will be removed as a result. A closure of the route may be necessary to complete all or portions of the project.
